Working here was amazing and fun. I would educate students in the grades 8th-10th. They would learn about the anatomy of the body, what consent is and the difference between both consent. Also would learn about LGBTQ.
Hostile work environment creating stress and anxiety to staff.
Grants and Contract Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – October 5, 2017
EngenderHealth is relocating to Washington DC. There is also a restructuring project going on at the same time. All these processes are shrouded in mystery and the staff have no information and yet expected to make decisions such as if they would like to move to DC while their positions are not assured.
Great work culture
Poor senior management backed by a weak Board of Governors.
Former Associate (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 12, 2017
For over 70 years this organization has helped millions of people around the world in regards to reproductive health rights. Employees are passionate, brilliant, and very dedicated. Can't say the same for management- who is overpaid, lack interpersonal skills, and have no strategy for the future of the organization.
In a time where most companies are progressive and strive for work life balance and benefits EngenderHealth is regressing. More and more benefits are being taken away from employees who are not appreciated and often treated as disposable.
Good health and retirement benefits
Uncertainty, Instability, Poor management, lack of funding
Senior Program Coordinator (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – April 13, 2017
I learned a lot at Engenderhealth, but I would never work in for them again. The jobs are very demanding and there is no work-life balance. I was stressed and I could no longer keep up with the pace because it was too much.
This is not a well run place. They have their priorities our of order. The travel is absurd!! A lot of good people with their hearts in the right place but nearly a complete lack of serious management. Staff are clueless about field activities. Donor rules are merely guidelines and often are ignored. Financial management of program staff does not exist at all.
Program Assistant (Former Employee) – Lalitpur, Nepal – September 22, 2015
The management was supportive and we had fun working with the supervisors and the colleague and learning from them. I had to work under the pressure to meet the deadlines of the assigned task under the minimal supervision which was a great challenge. The enjoyable part in the office was friendly environment and transparency in work.
